Question about Toshiba 20GB 5400 RPM NOTEBOOK HARD DRIVE KIT FOR SATELLITE PRO 4200 SERIES (20SP425TOS)
Second hand laptop from e-bay,no powwer lead no battery no memory,and no hard drive i have acquired all these items but it just wont boot,i plug the power lead in i get 1 steady green light,when i press the start button this light flashes amber and nothing else happens.....helpppp.
I had a similar problem on SatPro6100. Mine was LSSSLSSL (10010001).
Thinking that the laptop was buggered I decided I would take it apart and have a look at the insides.
Whilst it was apart I also disconnected the BIOS battery.
Couldn't find anything that looked like it had burnt out so put it all back together again.
When I turned it on again the darn thing was working fine!!!
The whole thing was apart for about 2 hours or so.
I don't know if it was removing the main battery and leaving it out for that time or whether it was resetting the BIOS (by disconnecting its battery) that fixed the problem.
Anyway, I have managed to get all my data off the laptop so not too worried if it screws up again.
I do however always disconnect the power source BEFORE shutting down the laptop and only reconnect it after I have pressed the on button. Seems to be working fine (for now!)
Hope that helps someone out there!
